One of Tesla CEO Elon Musk’s other ventures, The Boring Company, has plans to complete its first public project in Las Vegas later this year.
As construction continues, the company has now confirmed on its website that passengers will be transported through the tunnels in a fleet of Model S, Model 3, and Model X vehicles.
“Loop is an all-electric, zero-emissions, high-speed underground public transportation system in which passengers are transported via compatible Autonomous Electric Vehicles (AEVs) at up to 150 miles per hour through Main Artery Tunnels between stations. AEVs are Tesla vehicles (Model S, 3, and X) that operate autonomously within the Loop system.”
Along with the new information, The Boring Company also revealed for the first time sone renders of the three station types – surface, subsurface, and open-air stations.
Construction of the twin tunnels, that will link one side of the Las Vegas Convention Centre (LVCC) to the other, began in 2019. The second 1.3km tunnel was only completed in the early morning hours of May 14.
New details about a possible second tunnel system in San Bernardino county were also revealed by a county official recently. In comments to local media, the official also spoke of a new 12-passenger van they are helping Tesla develop.
